Oooh. Ohhh. Lineage 15.1 (testing)

Did anyone already try the build with microg?

@LeonL I tried, but it the patcher says odexed roms are not supported and stopps when flashing.

@chrmhoffmann I tested bluetooth audio today in my car for about 45 minutes, there were no interruptions or playback problems. I’m going to test tomorrow with the headphones again and will post a full logcat (deleted the old one already).

New build: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=5862345805528064987

Changes: Hopefully now fixed LEDs. Thx to Demon000 <demonsingur@_____.com>

Notification LED is fixed for me! :clap:

The bluetooth issues seem to be gone with the 31.July build.
I tested with the earphones for 2x 45minutes and had no connection loss.

  • MyPhoneExplorer 1.8.9

I have problems using Google Maps - anybody else?

Seems to work fine for me. Define “problems” …

It won’t open… but I will install the latest release now, and reinstall GMaps and test it again.

Works for me with opengapps pico and the latest build.

I don’t know it this is a build - or generally OREO-related question:

Is there a way change/set the standard app for e.g. video?
In earlier android versions it was “Settings - Apps…” and then click on the three spots in the top right corner, but they are not there.
I want MX player to play videos, instead of playing them in the browser.

Usually you need to go to Settings > Apps > All Apps > Browser and clear the defaults of the browser. Next time you start a video, Android should ask you which app you want to use for watching.

In Firefox you can also click the little Android icon next to the web address whenever there is an app that could also handle the content that’s viewed in the browser at the moment.

I have it working, as I have a local change to the bootloader. I sent the patch to FP through the bugtracker, but no news (is bad news here).

Yes, I want to go home and rethink my life, but anyway … I didn’t find it online, so I started to do it myself and learned a lot.
So have fun exploring, filling in some blanks and correcting any mistakes and inconsistencies :slight_smile:

Hi,
I installed lineages OS 15.1 by wiping the system, then I enabled the encryption. Now from TWRP 3.2.2-0 I cannot access the data even by typing the encryption password. How can I update the OS?

You don’t need TWRP to decrypt data (*) in order to update the OS. Just press cancel and then adb sideload.

(*) This is a known issue and not a FP2-specific bug.

The changes for FP2 are now merged into lineage-15.1 branches. I hope we’re good to go soon.

… or install from SD card (Install - Select Storage).

The issue is that TWRP can’t decrypt data yet when encrypted with LineageOS 15.1.
That it doesn’t need to decrypt data for OS installs rather saves the day :slight_smile: .
